Welcome To Gilda's Toronto

Our vast array of programs are designed to meet the emotional, social & practical needs of individuals with cancer related stress. Membership and all programs are offered at no charge.

We found out about Gilda’s Toronto, and they had a lot of information for me as her primary caregiver and for younger individuals, like our son. I signed up for one of their caregiver support groups. I found the psychosocial care I needed at Gilda’s Toronto, which was a relief. It was a supportive environment where we all shared similar experiences.
A friend suggested I seek out a support group, something I would never have considered. I’m a private person, and I pride myself on always solving my own problems.
“Congratulations to Gilda’s Club on the work that’s been done with its Resilient Communities Fund grant,” said Jessica Bell, MPP for University-Rosedale. “Your ongoing work supporting and empowering people affected by cancer is critical. Thank you for your commitment and dedication throughout the pandemic and beyond.”
"We are honoured to be chosen as the charity of choice by Juniper Park\TBWA for this initiative on Facebook," said Elizabeth Dalgleish, Executive Director of Gilda’s Toronto. "A new social tool like Post Mortem Post will help people build their digital legacy with the ability to direct tribute gifts in their memory to organizations like Gilda’s Toronto.”
Over the years, the connection has become more personal for Fiona – when her close friend received a diagnosis, Fiona called Gilda’s Toronto because she knew she would get the kind of support she needed.
"I was happy to be paired with someone who shared the same experiences" through the mentee/mentor relationship. "Amy told me things that worked for her, and I was able to try them out myself."
The day I was diagnosed, I just cried all day. I didn’t want to talk to anyone, not even my husband.
